Wouldn’t you like to know what Ephren Taylor know’s about wealth?

If you are in the Atlanta area tomorrow night, I would highly suggest that you attend bible study at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church.  It’s going to be a great night! Ephren Taylor, CEO of City Capital Corporation (stock symbol CTCC) will speak about wealth creation and putting “Wall Street on Blast.” If you’ve never heard of him,  here are some of the highlights of his career:

* Started business ventures at the age of 12
* Made first million by 16
* Youngest Black CEO of a Publicly Traded Company
* Oversees over 250 Million in Assets
* Diverse client list ranges from Stock Market Day Traders to Hip Hop Icons

If you won’t be in the Atlanta area tomorrow or you can’t make it to New Birth, you can view everything on the site Streaming Faith. In either case it will begin at 7pm.

By the way… I’ll be attending, so if you do get the opportunity to go, and you see me, please say hello!!! 😀

Against All Odds

leave a comment »

Patrick Henry Hughes was born blind but plays in the University of Louisville pep band thanks to the aid of his father. (via CBS & YouTube)

I can kind of relate to Patrick’s father in a way. My mom is visually impaired and sometimes it can be hard to help her, but I lover her & she’s really quite amazing! She returned to school after 30 years, she’s adjusted surprising well to losing her sight even though it’s been a recent development in her life, she’s an active member of her church (New Birth Missionary Baptist Church)…

Stories like Patrick’s or my mom sometimes serve as inspiration for the rest of us, but they’re really no different than we are. Their life circumstances may be different, but they have freedom of choice just as we do. They choose to press on regardless of their “disability.” They choose not to let their “handicap” excuse them from participating in life or pursuing happiness. 

It’s not impossible for us to use our freedom of choice to achieve more in our lives. At times it’s hard, overwhelming, scary, (and more often than not it takes a long, long time) but it can be done. I am by no means perfect, but I hope that one day I’ll be able to share my own “Against All Odds” story. 

What’s your story?
